Ripley’s Game


ripleysgameTom Ripley (John Malkovich) agrees to help a gangster friend (Ray Winstone) convince a dying picture framer (Dougray Scott) to kill a man. This remake of The American Friend (1977) is different, but equally watchable. Malkovich is good as an older Ripley, living in a mansion in northern Italy with his wife, enjoying the good life, and occasionally getting drawn into murder and mayhem. Scott is also fine, but his characterā€™s motivations are not convincing enough. Still, the story is exciting and the filmmakers understand the character of Ripley very well.
